This is more than just a game of cat and mau5. The furry feline friend of the one and only Deadmau5 has teamed up with the people at SOL REPUBLIC to bring us the world’s very first headphones for cats. The face of the campaign, Professor Meowingtons pHd, helped to develop the cat-only headphones that contain such features as dog isolating technology, 14 sound engines delivering deep bass and high clarity, and a three-button remote and ClearTalk™ microphone. The headphones are also adjustable to fit cats of all sizes.
Just how much is a pair of these special headphones? They will run you $999.00. There were only 10 of these feline friendly headphones created, which makes them very exclusive. All proceeds acquired from the headphones will go to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), a national animal charity focused on rescuing animals from abuse, and helping to pass humane laws.
If you can’t beat the beer snob in the group going on and on about the best stouts from New York’s Great Lakes region, now you can at least join them. Thanks to a new a service, BeerText.Us, you can find out about a brew ahead of time, skipping out on the embarrassment of not knowing what you ordered and risk spitting it out all over the bar.
BeerText is as simple as texting the name of the beer to (315) 679-4711. Moments later, check your phone for the beer’s history, ingredients, and alcohol content. The service beats scouring the web on your phone’s browser, and is super helpful for those with specific allergies.
Hey lushes/frat boys, we just got wind of a new drinking game called "BasketPong." Described as the "ultimate drinking, party and tailgating game that combines the competiveness and skill of basketball and darts with the fun and excitement of activities such as beer pong, quarters and flip cup."
So basically it combines all things guys love. And we don't mean to leave the ladies out --all you WNBA fans can play too. BasketPong looks like your average basketball setup except it has mulitiple mini nets/cups to land your shots in (pun intended).
Love it or hate it, the subway system in New York is still the cheapest and easiest way for anyone to get around town. MetroCard prices have been on the rise for years with not a whole lot of improvement on the trains themselves. Even catching a train in Manhattan can take what seems like forever when 5 minute waits turn into 20 minute waits. Forget Brooklyn and Queens. Pack some food and a small survival kit because you may never get back to the outer boroughs if you’re relying on one train. We’ve come to love and rely on our subway system, despite it’s shortcomings, but it would be great to know if or when we could give up on one train and catch another.
The loss of a limb is a situation few even want to think about, but a reality for many. For years, many associated the best prosthetics with ones that looked as close to their equivalent as possible. Congenital or traumatic limb loss is a very personal experience, however. Crafting a limb that looks as close to “normal” as possible does not erase a disability, their experience, or the fact that it is a prosthetic. There is no “fix” to make any of that go away, and while many want to feel as though they have a “normal” limb, there’s a fine line between pleasing the person who needs the prosthetic and pleasing the rest of society by making their disability as invisible as possible when most options for those who need prosthetics are the same flesh-colored pieces that emulate the equivalent body part.
Bespoke Innovations’ mission is to radically change this attitude toward prosthetic limbs. They offer patients that need prosthetics an option to customize their limb. The results are something undeniably beautiful. According to Bespoke Innovations, this is how it works:
Vending machines: they’re life savers to anyone that doesn’t have the time to wait in line for a meal between classes and 15 minute breaks at work. Sure, there’s not a lot inside that’s nutritionally sound unless gummy candies with vitamin C count, but help us survive a few more hours. They’re simple machines, not exactly built to churn out a nice meal. That, however, might be changing. Meet Let’s Pizza, the vending machine that makes and dispenses freshly made pizza.
June is National Camping Month so stow those stilettos in the back of your closet and whip out your boots! Summer is the perfect time to get down and dirty in nature. Whether you're camping the old fashioned way or hitting up this season's slew of music festivals, we know it's not always so comfortable sleeping on the ground and peeing in the bushes! So we've rounded up some of the coolest camping gadgets to help make your experience a little more, uh, suburban.
It finally happened. After resorting to deep-frying bubble gum, we may have run out of food to deep-fry. Anyone who’s ever said “I’d eat anything if it was deep fried” might have to put their money where their mouth is, almost literally. Food stylist Caitlin Levin has teamed up with photographer Henry Hargreaves to bring us something that’s both horrifying and a little appetizing: deep-fried gadgets.
Whether as a kid or full grown adult watching the Michael Bay movies, a lot of us have wanted a Transformer of our very own. It’s no wonder. The Transformers are huge, both literally and figuratively. They’ve survived over twenty years. A lot of our attics are full of old Transformer toys, comics, and tapes of the TV show. Anyone who didn’t want to be a Ninja Turtle, Jem, She-Ra, or Spider-Man either wanted a Transformer as a best friend or wanted to be a Transformer (kids have some strange priorities). Well, we’re all grown up now and the future isn’t quite as advanced as we wanted. We don’t have working rocket boots and none of us did become superheroes, but one man really has put together a Transformer of his own!
Sharks have pretty much become the most fascinating animal of our time. They’re feared, revered, and a little misunderstood. Between Jaws and Shark Week, you’ll find that most people either love or hate sharks. They’re the controversial celebrity of the animal kingdom. Movies have made them into monsters, villains, and the extreme accessories of villains. It’s made sharks, bigger, badder, and maybe a little more fascinating than they actually are. Sharks have been done to death, though. It’s high time they’ve been spiced up. They need something.
